This Story of Yours: Script Reading directed by Gerard Johnson
Part of the Retrospective: The Future Is History Strand
Originally staged at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 1968 with the help of Harold Pinter, John Hopkins’ This Story of Yours is a harrowing three act examination of a policeman accused of murdering a suspected paedophile during questioning.
At EIFF 2017, in a unique extension of his cutting-edge screen work, Gerard Johnson will direct a stage reading of this controversial play, which was later adapted for cinema and filmed as The Offence, directed by Sidney Lumet and starring ex-EIFF patron Sean Connery.
